Historic New England stands in solidarity

Jun 3, 2020

Historic New England stands in solidarity with voices around the country and its sister organizations in our region demanding justice for the murder of George Floyd. As a civic institution, we are firmly committed to equity, inclusiveness, and social justice — and condemn racism, which must end. As preservationists, we strive for truth and authenticity in the places we protect and the stories they frame.

Our new President and CEO, Vin Cipolla, assumed his position this week. Read his letter to the Historic New England community.
